Hi,

I was in desperately searching for a courier service to send a laptop to a remote place, which was serviceable by some courier agencies and speed post.
The options that I had, include Bluedart, DTDC and First flight. Most of the courier providers where reluctant to take laptop and some demanded a document from the excise department.

I read somewhere that one can trust speed post for sending laptop, if it is packed properly. I also read about horrifying stories of theft by courier people .
After reading all this I decided to take a chance with the government-run service and packed it with ample thermocol and bubble wrap. The speed post took a little longer but the laptop was delivered in one piece without any damage.

Will definitely recommend speed post for emergency situations like this where time is not a constraint.

PS: It all depends on how you pack the laptop as speed post uses railways to transport parcels and that too in bags.

Some tips for packing a laptop:

  • Use a carton which is almost a fit for your laptop.
  • Use ample thermocol to pack your laptop.
  • Place a thin sheet of sponge between the screen and keyboard
  • Use bubble wrap to pack the laptop along with thermocol. Put it on top of the carton too
  • Most important — Pray for its safe delivery https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Karma for your review and voted up….

Have they asked about the parcel?
Via speedpost one can’t send electronics (as per terms) But last year i sent mobile by speed post. When speedpost officer asked me ‘whats in the box’ I said Diwali sweet. he said, if mobile then it will be rejected and reversed back to me. I said ok for it. But it still delivered https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif
